Welcome to Battleford Central School


Trouble with Logon to Home Logic

If you are experiencing difficulty logging onto Home Logic, please contact Mrs. Sittler, Mrs. Tady or Mr. Ellis at 306-937-2112 and we will be pleased to assist you. 

Students leaving school grounds at noon

We would like to remind all of our students who would like to take advantage of the local, seasonal businesses at lunch time that they need to provide a signed and dated note from a parent or guardian EACH time they would like to leave the school grounds at lunch.  This is to ensure that student whereabouts are known at all times so that the staff and parents know who is where (and when they are there), and to make sure that student safety is maintained at all times.  We would like to thank everyone for this level of cooperation.  Enjoy the wonderful spring weather when outside, and remember to pay attention to vehicle traffic during the noon hour if/when leaving the school grounds.



Parents and guardians are now able to self-register for the HomeLogic system, which will allow access to your child(ren)'s attendance and academic progress.  Please use the link on the top-right corner of this web page to access HomeLogic.  For instructions on how to self-register, please click on the following link:  Parent Instructions to HomeLogic Registration.  We encourage parents and guardians to log on to this portal regularly, to check on student learning progress, and to see attendance records.

As a reminder, you will see two different types of assessments on HomeLogic:  formative assessments, which will be marked as either C (complete) or Inc (incomplete), and summative assessments that will be marked on the 1-4 rating scale.  Formative assessments are checkpoints on a student's path to learning a concept, and do not count towards report card marks.  The summative assessments are such items as final tests, projects or other activities that provide evidence that a student has learned a concept, which will then be reflected on the report card that comes home at the end of November, again in March and finally in June.

Please keep in mind that some learning outcomes, such as those in English Language Arts and Math, are complex, with many parts to them.  This makes assessing the complete outcome very difficult in Term 1, so marks might seem lower than you might expect, as not all parts have been covered, and a student cannot demonstrate full proficiency (a level 3) at this point.  These are on-going, year-long outcomes that will be re-assessed in Terms 2 and 3, and should then result in a proficient rating for the end of the year.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child's teacher at (306) 937-2112.


Bell Times

Our school day consists of 317 minutes per school day, as per the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education's 2012 legislative change to the length of the day for students.  Our bell times are listed below, and we have made one change from 2013-14 school year, moving our morning recess time back to 10:30-10:45 each morning.  This was done to more readily facilitate timetabling of core subjects for all grade levels.

Warning Bell - 8:50
Classes Start - 8:55

Recess - 10:30 to 10:45

Lunch Bell - 11:45
Lunch Recess - 12:05
Warning Bell - 12:30
Classes Start - 12:35

Recess - 2:05 to 2:20

Classes End - 3:27

Attendance Practice

Teachers are actively recording classroom attendance each morning by 9:00 and afternoon by 12:45.  Students who are late to school, for whatever reason, are asked to stop at the Office before going to class to pick up an "Admit Slip", which will tell their teacher that the student's attendance has been updated.

As well, if your child is going to be absent from school, please contact the school at (306) 937-2112 as soon as possible.  The Office staff will ask you for a reason for the absence, as we must record why students are not in school as part of the new data system.  We would like to thank you for your cooperation and assistance in ensuring that all students are accounted for each and every day, and that we provide accurate information to teachers for report cards each term.

Online Calendar

We are continuing to use the online calendar to share events.  Please check regularly as we update this frequently.  A paper copy of the calendar is also attached to the back of the monthly newsletter should you require one.  Our newsletters are sent home with the youngest child in each family.  As well, newsletters are also posted on our site on the Newsletters page (see the link on the left menu).
